DANCING TO THE BEAT
OF YOUR OWN DRUMMER
Well this was inevitable.
The latest craze is the SILENT RAVE.
Members of the isolation generation gather together and dance to their own music on their MP3 players. After spending their adolescent years alone, growing up in a dark room eating crap, like mushrooms, the long term effects of experiencing reality through a computer screen in splendid isolation has finally pushed Generation Next to this unparralleled level of Solipsism.
No need for chaperones, worrying about sexually transmitted diseases or unwanted pregnancies. Chances are good that if they 'hook up' with someone at a Silent Rave, these kids won't be having intercourse in the back of their Soccer Mom's Van, eew that's totally old school!
Nope. They'll prolly just go back home and watch each other pleasure themselves on the webcam!
...and here I was worried about humans overpopulating the planet.
